The 2019-20 calendar is in place now- you can see it on the wiki page. We're looking at playing midweek every week from 9/10 July for at least 4 weeks.

And Bert Kassies, God bless him, has preliminary 2019-20 information up.

I reckon we've about a 1% chance of being seeded in the second qualifying round, but we'll need a shedload of results to go our way. Everyone start praying for a Rangers win in Scotland....

Delaney should get himself a job with the GAA for a while to get up to speed for when he joins UEFA on rooting at competitions, making draws as complex as they can, having committees for committees etc-GAA and UEFA as they made them they matched them!
*Add the NIFL pre-playoff, EL playoffs, and the possibility of an additional quarter final needed depending on cup winners/league position. If i've read it correctly there is the chance of 5 quarter finals?!

Just on the European front, interesting to see BATE beat Arsenal last night in the Europa League knockouts. They are still primarily stocked with Belarussian players, and only a couple of their players have a significant number of caps for Belarus (who are still a couple of levels below a poor Ireland team). Shows what's possible.
